Call to Worship (from Psalm 23) Rev. Dr. Phuc Dai Nguyen

One:   For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the

           same function,

ALL:   so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are

members one of another.     Romans 12:4-5

One: Now there are varieties of gifts,

ALL: but the same Spirit;

One: and there are varieties of services,

ALL: but the same Lord;

One: and there are varieties of activities,

ALL: but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.

To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 

I Corinthians 12:4-7

We are one in Christ Jesus, all one body, all one spirit, all together.

We are one in Christ Jesus, all one body, all one spirit, all together.

one single baptism, one Holy Comforter, the Holy  Spirit, uniting all.

Closing Hymn   “What A Wonderful World”      Handout

Words and Music by George David Weiss and Bob Thiele

I see trees of green, red roses too, I see them bloom for me and you,  and I think to myself What a Wonderful World.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white, the bright blessed day, the dark sacred night, and I think to myself What a Wonderful World.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky are also on the faces of people goin’ by,

I see friends shakin’ hands, sayin’ “How do you do!” They’re really sayin’ “I love you.”

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow. They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know and I think to myself What a Wonderful World.

Yes, I think to myself What a Wonderful World.

Benediction             Rev. Dr. Phuc Dai Nguyen


Shalom (meaning - “May you be well and whole and in communion with all creation.”)

        Shalom, my friends, Shalom, my friends, Shalom, Shalom.

       Till we meet again, Till we meet again, Shalom, Shalom.

Upcoming Activity — “At The River” is a feature-length documentary about a certain time and place in the deep south. In the Civil Rights era of the 50s and 60s, most Presbyterian ministers stood on the banks of the cultural river of segregation and white supremacy. Some opted not to stir the waters in their congregations and communities by speaking out. However, a few young southern Presbyterian ministers braved those currents through their sermons, community organizing, and participating in marches and protests. They faced dangerous, hate-filled consequences for these actions. "At The River" chronicles their lives and their decisions, as well as director Carolyn Crowder’s firsthand experience as a young white southern girl from Montgomery, Alabama. During those mean and turbulent times these ministers, through their love and example, had a huge impact on her life in helping her overcome her southern racist brainwashing.  More details to follow.

Church clean-up for August is Saturday, August 13, at 9:30 AM.  Please join Bill and others to sweep, mop floors, clean the bathrooms, straighten up chairs, and such.  More hands make for light work.  Thanks.
